Corinna, your recent trailing space and dot removal code only handles Posix paths,
not Windows paths. Is that by design, or should it be moved from
normalize_posix_path into path_conv::check? 
Also it should be placed after the removal of the final /, so as to get rid of the 
trailing . in "/somewhere/mydir./"
